"Iam in my mid 40's and a mother of one child. I have a very demanding and active job in the medical field. I see woman of all ages complain of the way they look and how their bodies have changed with age, pregnancies and yo- yo dieting. Well I'm one of those women!! Although having one pregnancy it definitely was enough to change my body. I was left with excessive loose skin. Later adding three laparoscopic surgeries, and years of weight loss and weight gain. My tummy became a train wreck!! After years of contemplating surgery I decided it was now time to get my body back. I choose Dr. Mizgala because of her outstanding reputation as a surgeon. I have seen some of her work and talked with patients about their experience and knew she was the Dr. of choice for me. Iam now three months post surgery and feeling wonderful!! I love my new tummy and belly button. I put on a bikini for the first time in over twenty years. My confidence level is higher than it has been in years. For anyone contemplating surgery dont put it off. For me it was a life changing experience."- S. / Google / Aug 07, 2019
"Very Happy with my New Chin! - I'd been wanting this procedure for awhile. The doctor and staff were lovely and it really didn't hurt. There was some lumpiness I had to adjust to as my body healed, but I wore the compression garment as much as possible and used a lot of arnica for bruising/swelling. I'm very happy with the results and so glad I did it."- J. / RealSelf / Dec 03, 2019
"Without a doubt the best doctor I’ve ever had. Dr. Mizgala is a magician who made my flabby stomach washboard flat, and made an ugly C-section scar disappear. She is an absolutely brilliant surgeon, and her sincere interest in and concern for her patients was clear throughout my time with her. All my questions and concerns were personally and fully answered in a way I could understand and that put me at ease. I would trust her to do any surgery or procedure without a doubt. There should be a 10 star rating available - she earned it."- J. / Google / Nov 27, 2019

"Super delighted with Dr Mitzgala! This is not my first rodeo and the gentle care and personalized attention I received from her and her staff went beyond what I expected. I received a call from the doctor herself the day after my procedure, which happened to be on a Saturday. She provided my family with a way to contact her or her staff and all of the tools they needed to be sure I was comfortable at home. I had Vaser Lipo of hips inner/ outer thigh with renuvion to help with some loose skin. My initial visit (and all)was very thorough, she was honest about results and what would be the best approach for me. Not to mention the results are phenomenal. I was able to return to work within a few days which she knew was important to me. My procedure was tailored to my needs and the staffs amazing service extended into my follow up care. 6 weeks out and I’ve had the best experience. Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Dr Mitzgala and I would certainly chose her if needed in the future."- M.P. / Google / Nov 13, 2019
BodyTite can help if you want to see better contours and skin tightness in one or multiple areas of your body. You may be a candidate for BodyTite if you want to eliminate pockets of fat and improve the look of sagging skin. You may have considered traditional liposuction or body lift surgery but would prefer to avoid surgical downtime and scarring. Most areas of the body can be treated with BodyTite, but some of the common areas patients need help with are the arms, stomach, chest, knees, and thighs. In your consultation, Dr. Mizgala will listen to your concerns before helping you decide if BodyTite or another procedure is right for you.
BodyTite is usually performed with local anesthesia, but general anesthesia may be used if you are nervous or having several areas treated. The specially designed BodyTite applicator is inserted through small incisions in your skin. BodyTite has an internal and external thermometer that will treat each area while transmitting energy to tighten the skin. The applicator will loosen and liquefy the fat with radiofrequency waves so the fat can be easily suctioned out of your body. The heat used during the fat removal will tighten your skin and connective tissue for instant skin contraction. BodyTite treatments normally take about 30 – 45 minutes per area treated. Multiple sessions may be needed or recommended by Dr. Mizgala to deliver your best results.
What to Expect
The good news is that there is no downtime. The more active you are after the procedure, the quicker the recovery. A compression garment should be worn over the treated areas to promote healing while maintaining your new shape. Some results will be seen immediately, and final results will continue to improve for 3 – 6 months.
Frequently Asked Questions
How much does BodyTite cost?
The cost of your BodyTite procedure varies greatly, depending on the area of the body that is being addressed and how large the coverage area is. The price for BodyTite will range between $4,000 – $8,000. BodyTite continues to grow in popularity among our NOLA patients because of its effective results and minimally invasive technique. Once your treatment plan is discussed, she will give you exact prices on all the treatment plans you may consider.
BodyTite is ideal for men and women who wish to avoid lengthy surgery. Although BodyTite produces stunning results, traditional lift procedures, such as tummy tucks, arm lifts, and thigh lifts, may be better options for some patients with excessive loose skin. During your assessment, Dr. Mizgala can discuss the benefits of BodyTite versus more extensive surgical options, depending on your areas of concern.
What is radiofrequency?
Radiofrequency (RF) is an advanced energy that uses electrical currents to create controlled heat. This heat targets fat cells without disrupting the surrounding healthy tissue. It also helps shrink-wrap the fibroseptal network under the skin to tone the areas treated.
Is it safe?
Yes, as an FDA-approved treatment, BodyTite is a safe cosmetic procedure and is popular with both women and men. The procedure itself is very gentle and most patients are able to return to light activities soon after treatment. More strenuous activities can be resumed in 5 – 10 days, but this can vary.
